About us

Bodega Cruz de Piedra was founded more than three decades ago under the name "Bodega San Telmo" in MaipĂș, Mendoza, when Sigifredo Alonso started to make his dream of producing 100% varietal wines come true. Sigifredo brought winds of change from Napa Valley, California and was driven by the conviction that the future lay in varietal wines, something unthinkable for the Argentine wine industry in the early 1970s. In 1983, after 10 years of hard work, the winery took the first steps in varietal winemaking and launched San Telmo and Cuesta del Madero wines.

In 1997, the winery's name changed to "Bodega Cruz de Piedra" as its trademarks were taken over by Seagram, today Diageo, with the idea of concentrating all the efforts on wine production only. Later, in 2009, Bodega Cruz de Piedra got its brand Cuesta del Madero back and the second generation of the Alonso family resumed work following the steps originally taken by Sigifredo.

Today, when vineyards are over three decades old and are thus at their prime and most profound bond with nature, Bodega Cruz de Piedra surprises us again with Cuesta del Madero, Tiasta, Umbral de los Tiempos and its icon wine Cruz de Piedra.
